Abstract:
Lawrence states that while North Carolina has not produced the inventors Edison, McCormick, or Morse, that the state still has had its share of inventors, including Dr. Richard J. Gatling. His inventions include a machine for planting and a steam plow created in 1867. However, the invention Gatling is known the world over for is the Gatling Gun. Druggists were inventing patent medicines like Stanback, B.C., Capudine, and Bromo Seltzer. William Rand Kenan, Jr., who had a distinguished career as a chemist and chemical engineer, was connected with the discovery of Calcium Carbide.
